Turnaround Time

Plastics Technology Laboratories Inc. provides some of the shortest turnaround times in the industry. Often quick tests like Material Identification or a few simple mechanical tests are turned over in only a few days. More extensive tests can take longer, but it would be unusual for a set of tests to take more than ten working days. All reports are emailed, and stored electronically as PDF files in PTLI archives. Rush turn around, generally less than 48 hours, is available at an added cost.
